I do agree that the Vic should be able to go past 2500, and may be conservative in their end, but again, without analysis, I wouldn't. You have a big cube engine running quite hot and has a common sump which contaminates the oil from engine, tranny and clutch.
One exception would be to use AMSOIL Motorcycle Specific oils and the AMSOIL EA Series oil filter. With this combination, you are good to 5000.
The filter is a necessary element as it is 15 Micron Absolute and not another filter compares.

Oil, is the Lifeblood of your engine. The oil filter, is the Kidney that keeps it clean.

Cheap isn't The Best
I gotta raise a HUGE BS
flag on this post. There's nothing super duper special about Amsoil that will allow you to double you change intervals unless you are willing to forgo your factory warranty and trust that Amsoil will step in and pay your bills once Victory refuses your claims.
Do you have the fully documented test using a Victory 100/106 Freedom engine that proves your assumption that your oil and filter can maintain the qualities required by Victory to 5000 miles? Without that I ain't drinking the kool aid.
Also, there are a number of threads on the larger Victory sites where people have documented that in the Victory Freedom engines, Amsoil WILL CAUSE CLUTCH SLIPPAGE.
Factory interval is 2500 miles, you choose to not follow it at your own peril. Will there be engine / trans damage is you don't, who knows, but I for one do not want to be the one that finds out.
I suggest plotting out dealers on your route and planning for the 1 or 2 stops, depending on the length of your journey, to get your oil changed, it's cheap insurance.
